First a short history lesson. In August of 2009, I came up with an idea for an original graphic novel. I had already made two (both Star Wars fan fiction) and I was ready to do something that was my own sandbox. I released the novel, entitled Journeys of Shelby Bly, in 2012. Once I was done, I looked back on it and decided it was nowhere near the best that I could do and I loved the concept too much to just give up on it. So, in 2014 I began work on a brand new graphic novel using similar concepts and characters but with a new and vastly improved story. (I have also been doing far more research on the creation of graphic novels thanks to several awesome books I received.) I haven't come up with a title for the new novel yet so I'm tentatively calling it the Shelby Bly Project after the title character, Shelby Bly. Makes sense, right?
The new story is coming along quite well. I'm more or less on the second draft of the story and I've been working on several pieces of concept art. You can see everything related to the project at its official website shelby.d9s.co I invite you to check out the site when you have some spare time. It's a little bare-bones right now but I'll be adding to it more and more as I progress on the project. I welcome your helpful comments and constructive critique.
Thanks and now I'll go add some new art to my gallery here. Take care!
